My daughter took hip hop classes at the Oxford Center for Dance for 3 summers. We live in Delaware so going there during the school year didn't work out but they always welcomed her back for summer classes. The classes were well-run, timely, and a lot of fun for her.
Pizza by Elizabeths is not your run-of-the mill pizza place at all. The fresh, homemade ingredients result in an outstanding meal. The cream of tomato soup is delicious. Everyone gets exactly what she wants because you can order pizza and salad ingredients individually. It's really fun to create your own masterpiece!
The Arsenal is an excellent choice for your out of town guests to get a picture of this quaint, historic town. The food is very good and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is Colonial. Top dinner off with a stroll through the historic houses in town.
Porto-Fino's is a great family restaurant. The pizza is fresh and tasty. The service is good and everyone is friendly and welcoming. It's right on Rt. 9 in New Castle so it's very conveniently located.
A Piece of Ireland is a small local pub in Newark. The owners take pride in offering welcoming, friendly atmosphere. The Guinness beef stew is so filling and delicious. Go on a weekend night around 9 to enjoy the Irish bands - it's great fun!
Gavatos is one of my favorite presents. My husband gets me a box for every occasion and I savor them in between. The Concord Pike store is not usually as crowded as the downtown store so it's a good choice for the big holidays.
J D Shuckers is a great place for good food and courteous service at the beach. It's a little off the beaten track so you can usually get a seat right away. Definitely a place to try next time you're in Lewes!
Video Americain is a well kept secret. They have a good selection of older films as well as the popular new ones. They have a viewing room which has seats from the old State Theatre on Main Street. This is definitely a local business worth supporting!
The Newark Camera shop is a well kept secret in town. I needed a bulb for my parents' old movie projector - they had it. We had so much fun watching the home movies from when we were kids. They also rent equipment like projectors. Friendly, helpful employees too!
This family-run business has a gigantic inventory for the model train enthusiast. It's fun to just walk around and see the possibilities for your home set up. The employees are friendly and helpful too.
